A Jordanian man has been put in prison for threatening to blow up the Australian embassy in Amman and kill tourists from Australia.
The charge sheet said that in January, Ali al-Hasanat, posted a message on his Facebook page addressed to the Australian embassy in Amman, “threatening to blow it up.”
The 37-year-old was accused of using the Internet “to carry out activity that could expose Jordan to acts of aggression.”
He was deported from the Gold Coast in August last year. While in Queensland, he received more than 30 criminal convictions for reasons including drug dealing and breaching court orders.
His Facebook profile has shown him making threats against the Australian government and posting pictures of himself showing young children how to hold machine guns and pistols.
Jordan recently jailed a number of people for having joined the ISIL Takfiri terrorist group or spreading propaganda in its favor.
In November, a court in the country handed down jail terms to five people for being members of the group and promoting it on the Internet.
